WWE Fondant Cake



  • One square cake, frosted
  • White fondant
  • Black fondant
  • Red icing color
  • Black Candy Melts® candy
  • Pretzel rods
  • Red licorice strings
  • Black Sixlets®


  • Fondant roller
  • Pizza cutter or paring knife
  • Parchment or waxed paper
  • WWE candles
  • Cake board

1) Apply fondant to cake

Roll out the white fondant. Place it over the cake, smooth it down and trim off the excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife. Reserve the excess white fondant. Roll out the black fondant and wrap it around the sides of the cake, trimming and reserving the excess. To create red fondant, knead the excess white fondant into a ball until soft. Using a toothpick, dot red icing color onto the fondant and knead until evenly distributed. Roll out the red fondant, cut into strips and place them around the edges of the "ring." Reserve excess red fondant.

2) Create a WWE logo

Cut out a circle of the excess black fondant and place on top of the cake in the center of the "ring." Freehand a WWE symbol using the excess white and red fondant.

3) Cover pretzels with candy

Melt black candy per package instructions. Dip four pretzel rods into melted candy. Place on parchment paper-covered cookie sheet and chill until set, about 5 minutes. Poke one dipped pretzel rod into each corner of the "ring."

4) Attach licorice "ropes"

Wrap three rows of licorice strings around the pretzels to look like ropes, securing the ends to the pretzels with excess melted candy as you go.

5) Decorate with Sixlets

Add black Sixlets® all around the bottom edge of the cake.

6) Place WWE candles

Top with WWE candles for an unbeatable cake!
